PSN Store Update Jan/14/2010 – the Where Did Everything Go? edition

I’ll be honest with you, there’s not much here this week when it comes to free and/or worthwhile content.  The hipsters can find solace that Vampire Weekend make their debut on Guitar Hero 5, JRPG fans can revel at the fact that a demo is out for Lunar: Silver Star Harmony, and Gran Turismo PSP owners can enjoy the free car pack released.  Other than that there are new trailers for the localized or “International” version of JRPGS Star Ocean:The Last Hope and White Knight Chronicles.
Let’s just hope the volume of the Playstation Store’s weekly updates so far in 2010 is not an indication as to what to expect for the rest of the year…or maybe I was just spoiled with the updates during the end of 2009  Sean C.
